Oh. My. God.

A quick update:

So Sally Kern doesn’t think she should apologize. Why? Here’s why, according her official statement:

“I said nothing that was not true, I said nothing out of hate and I don’t believe my colleagues will censure me…A vigorous debate on an issue is not ‘hate speech’ - it’s free speech. I have made clear my opposition to the agenda of homosexual activists, but I have never endorsed or supported any hateful action targeting individuals on the other side of this debate and never will. The fact that many gay rights activists claim anyone opposing their agenda is engaging in ‘hate speech’ says more about them than me.”

Wow. Just wow.

You know what’s worse? Apparently her Republican colleagues gave her a standing ovation after she relayed this sentiment to them in closed caucus.
